Warriors vs Trail Blazers Game 4 Final Analysis

It’s not unforgivable to give up a 13 point lead against the Golden State Warriors. It is unforgivable to only score 13 points in a quarter in the playoffs. The Trail Blazers had no answer for Golden State’s offense in the second half of Game 3.

That’s okay. No team in the NBA can keep the Warriors from scoring in bunches for an entire game. The problem Portland had wasn’t stopping Golden State from scoring. It was scoring when they had the basketball.

Portland can run with Golden State, but they’re losing the key individual matchups. Curry and Kyle Thompson are dominating Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. In the paint, nobody can hang with Draymond Green. Portland’s confidence is shot. They’ll lose Game 4 by around 10 points just like they lost Game 3.

NBA Playoffs Betting Pick: Warriors -3 ½
